[owncloud-devel] Fwd: LinuxTag 2014

Hi all,

Again the question about LinuxTag 2014 (May 8-10 in Berlin), but this time I 
spam devel with it, sorry - but I bet most of you are not on the -events 
mailing list! (maybe you should be?)

Is anybody here able and willing to give a short 45 minute workshop once a 
day about ownCloud development at LT? 45 minutes is not long - a short 
introduction to app development should not be hard at all. I'm sure we can 
arrange travel support* if it is problematic to travel to Berlin.

You get:
* hugs and all the club mate you can drink;
* free Linuxtag entree and food (eur 89 otherwise)
* Access to Re:Publica exhibition area
* Droidcon access on Saturday

I really need at least two people willing to do this... Pretty please?
Read below for details on the plan...


With 'travel support' I don't mean I come pick you up and personally carry 
you there, I was thinking about financial support to help with the costs for 
a train ticket and/or hotel. But if being carried is really important for 
you, maybe we can arrange something - just contact me ;-)

Hi all,

I'll organize the LinuxTag Booth this year. LinuxTag, taking place during May 
8-10, is different this year - they have partnered with Droidcon and 
Re:Publica for their event, moved to a new location. Brand new!

I have proposed to do something different than a normal booth, too. I'm 
involved with KDE, openSUSE and ownCloud so I thought the three could do 
something cool this year ;-)

The plan is this: We get an area with a few rows of chairs and a projector. 
Every hour, we host a 45 minute workshop there. Examples:
* testing Linux distro's with openQA
* writing an ownCloud App
* Building a basic QML Plasma App
The schedule will probably be: 10-12 and 13-17, so ~6 talks/day.

People get something for participating - nothing big, just a few nice 

On the sides of this area, we have our booths: the traditional table with 
material and somebody around to ask questions from.

All this should of course make 'our' area much more interesting and give 
opportunities to talk to people.

LinuxTag liked the idea, so did the openSUSE board, KDE and ownCloud so they 
all tasked me with making it happen.

Now I need you. I need volunteers who are willing to give a short workshop on 
an ownCloud subject. Building an ownCloud app is an obvious example, another 
might be "first steps with PHP" or something. Each volunteer gives one 
workshop per day, three times in total thus. You'll also be at the booth a 
bit but we have >6 people for one table so that won't be much either. Plenty 
of time to enjoy LT! Also, you get to enter the Re:Publica exhibition area, 
which is awesome. We can take at most 2 volunteers (if you give a talk at LT 
you get a ticket already).

Anybody interested?
